Broken, coming before God

Coming closer to Passover, the most important period of the year, we should look at ourselves and check if we are prepared enough to come before the Elohim.

Fallible we are, we should recognise our faults of the previous months. In a way, we should feel broken by our weaknesses which allowed the badness to come in and over us.

You also may ask why we should not remain broken. When broken it could be said that we can mend and come in a state where we can achieve the highest heights.

We have to know that we as ordinary being are just nothing But when coming before God, as a nobody, humble and willing to be under Him, it is possible to receive everything.

Like the Most High Elohim is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness [chesed / covenant loyalty] and truth and keeps loving-kindness [chesed] for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin (Exodus 34:6–7), we too should work on ourselves every day over and over again.

Always trying to become more like Christ bit by bit we shall start to change. The more we become conformed and transformed into the image and likeness of God, in whose image we have been created, the more we will demonstrate these wonderful qualities of His chesed love, mercy, grace, patience, long-suffering, goodness, and truth.

That way we will become less judgemental and more merciful; we will criticize less and intercede more.

Coming into covenant with God is not about just following the rules; it is about having a deep, abiding, intimate relationship with a loving God.

Because you are not made only to receive. You must also face the real world and challenge its chutzpah over and over. To do that, you need supreme wholeness, as though you were Adam in the Garden before his fall.

And if you should say,

“But it is impossible! It is beyond the capacity of a created being to be both something and nothing at once.”

You are right. It is impossible. That is precisely the advantage of the human being. That is why God created you:

To join heaven and earth, Nothingness and Being. To be part of His Plan. To make the impossible a reality.
